Makoa is one of the Champions in Paladins.

Lore[edit | edit source]

Once the dedicated protector of an island home of the Ska'drin, the ancient Makoa has now been summoned to wage war against the Magistrate on the mainland. Though he hopes to one day return to the islands, he fears that the unappeased volcanoes will rend them asunder in his absence.

In the meantime, however, he brings both the fury of the ocean and the indomitable resilience of the tortoise spirit, as well as various naval implements, to bear against those who would defile the natural world.

Summary[edit | edit source]

Makoa is a front line champion able to soak up large amounts of damage and a wide hitbox, making him ideal for defending his allies from enemy fire. His cannon shots are quite slow and have a steep drop off of trajectory and damage but can still be dangerous. Dredge Anchor allows Makoa to pull in enemy champions to leave them at the mercy of his teammates. Shell Shield spawns a large, round shield around Makoa for a duration, while Shell Spin allows him to quickly reposition himself even while his shield is active. Makoa's ultimate skill, Ancient Rage, will increase his maximum health, fully heal him and change his weapon shots for wide melee attacks that can hit multiple targets per swing, making it an ideal skill for turning the tides of battle around.
